General Health Questionnaire (Urdu)

The General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) is a self-administered screening test, designed to identify short-term changes in mental health (depression, anxiety, social dysfunction, and somatic symptoms). It is a pure state measure, responding to how much a subject feels that their present state “over the past few weeks” is unlike their usual state. It does not make clinical diagnoses and should not be used to measure long-standing attributes.

The GHQ focuses on the client’s ability to carry out “normal” functions and the appearance of any new disturbing phenomena. Designed for use by doctors, psychiatrists, and researchers, the GHQ is ideal for use in community and non-psychiatric settings and has four different versions:

  • GHQ-60: the fully detailed 60-item questionnaire,
  • GHQ-30: a short form without items relating to physical illness,
  • GHQ-28: a 28 item scaled version – assesses somatic symptoms, anxiety and insomnia, social dysfunction and severe depression, and
  • GHQ-12: a quick, reliable and sensitive short form – ideal for research studies

Screening instrument to detect psychiatric disorders in community settings and non- psychiatric clinical settings, such as primary care or general practice.
